“Average overall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had high expectations for my visit and unfortunately they weren't met. I had to queue for a table and the girl seating people was very nice and efficient despite the rudeness of people towards her. I was shocked by how ignorant people were while waiting for a table but she was amazingly professional. I had the soup and sandwich combo and overall it was average, it didn't leave any lasting impression and its not somewhere I feel is worth queuing for. The soup was fine no great flavour and the same with the sandwich, I think the place is very overhyped.

“A sweet treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We visited this week and weren't disappointed! We all tried a different dessert and they were all delicious, the chocolate pecan pie being our favourite. There is a nice atmosphere inside and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended!

“My favorite in Dublin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Delicious scones in lots of flavors like raspberry and blueberry so you don't have to have raising. Make sure you have the scones with jam, butter and the whipped cream. They aren't dry and are so yummy. Great soups for lunch too. Very lively and wonderful decor and atomosphere in both locations.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

I had an apple scone with raspberry compote and it was simply delicious.
The pear, chocolate and almond tart was also quite good.
Highly recommended.
